I've just pulled the cover off my raised bed and there are loads of ants running about. Will they harm my veg?

I bought some Charlotte seed potatoes but they refuse to chit. Should I just plant them regardless?

Thanks. We only burn seasoned logs, I might dig some into my raised beds before I start sowing

Bird feeding

I made a suet, seed, fat mixture and refilled 1/2 coconuts with it and hung them out for the birds. They loved them, unfortunately the squirrels on every occasion managed to remove the tasty block from the coconuts and make off with them. Very amusing to see them running away with something bigger than their heads but annoying none the less

Is ash from a woodburner good for the garden?

On Sunday I spotted a very large lady pheasant at the bottom of the garden. I put out some seed down there for her and when she'd finished eating she came up towards the house, hopped onto the wall and disappeared into the woods. Next day there was a huge cock pheasant down there filling up on seed. He then made his way up towards the house, hopped onto the wall and disappeared into the woods at exactly the same spot where Mrs pheasant did the day before. I think she must have gone home and told him where they could get something to eat. Anyway they have both been back a couple of times a day each since then. I hope they stay
